    Shouts to Bonsu and Combat Jack

    Combat Jack and the rest of the team lost with this one. I don’t give a fuck how many party’s he’s DJ’d or tracks he’s produced. Not relevant at all. Jeez-Louise, what are these guys thinking.

  • kaoz

    yeah true @bjack, thats what u get when u employ a failed lawyer to head ur magazine..leave that shit to the experts like Elliot Wilson and them….How can u put a person of no relevance to the hip-hop game on the cover? Plus combat jack, we all know u a fan of The Wire, but what does that have to do with good rap music..See i know what happened, u got cocky when u stole Funkflex bomb thinking you were invincible and now u think u can force feed us this shit!!

  • puerto-black

    Damn, they couldn’t give Nate Dogg the cover?

  • yoson

  • whoareu

    The Source wins again

  • Queen Medina

    LMAO @ Combat Jack’s “you too boo.” I can’t lie though, that Source cover is SEXY!

  • UaDickhead

    I can see why there is hate, cuz Idris isnt a rapper but shit, i thought Hip Hop was bigger than just rap, we love to put ourselves in a box, stop the cycle!

  • Ha!

    @kaoz

    I’m sorry … hold on, Miley Cyrus is on the line.

  • Mr. 3-Times

    Why niggas think they can resurrect the magazine game is beyond me. Mags have been dead ever since Nahright took over. Who wants to wait a month to read content thats displayed and posted all over the web at a rapid pace. Even if the magazine content is original, the article will be posted online if its good. What’s the fucking point of a magazine? What’s next? Apple coming out with a refurbished VCR?

  • Belize

    @puerto-black: I know right? Would it kill them to show a lil respect to a legend? Disgusting,

  • COLD BLOOD

    @ Ha!

    WHERE IS MILEY CYRUS? I WANNA RAPE HER, EAT HER FLESH AND DRINK HER BLOOD SO BAD!

    YOU CAN HATE ME NOW!

  • Reading is Fundamental

    Just prior to placing a mindless rant on a site that does not remove it comments, it helps if you do your research about Idris Elba or anyone else you’re unsure of. Try a website other than Wikipedia…

    @UDickhead “I can see why there is hate, cuz Idris isnt a rapper but shit, i thought Hip Hop was bigger than just rap, we love to put ourselves in a box, stop the cycle!”

    I agree that Hip Hop is bigger than music. I’m a long time fan of the Source. They even had Martin Lawrence on a cover and I got it then. Here though, not so much. Idris dabbles in music, but his brand isn’t really “Hip Hop”.

    @CombatJack: I’m in law school now! A nigga who doesn’t have to practice for a living is a success! Still a lose on the cover though.

  • whytheyhateme

The Source Magazine is up & about schooling everyone in the CULTER of Hip-Hop-nomics not just regurgitated hate and bullshit posts about the gossip behind the artists we love to hate. Nuff said Source Be KILLING IT!

    fuckin’ ODD! I respect Idris but he has no to limited role in hip hop culture. This is a fuckign bizare move. Terrible cover. Jessie J, too? Honestl,y what a fucking joke! pathetic. Just pathetic

  • Ya Boy G

    Lol. Lmfao. Limited role? He’s a fucking dj. Hr produced for a legend. That’s limited? All these 106 n park freestyles and niggas putting they basement recorded shit on everything has to be past ‘limited’ then.

    @bjack…a mans sport? Lol. Can’t even justify that with a response.

  • Nickey Negrito

    Dope cover and Idris is da man. How can ppl say he’s not hip hop when he is a hip hop dj? He produced and was featured on Jiggas A.G. Album. There’s alot of ppl involved in hip hop and they keep a low key position. Y’all remember Biggs from Rocafella records right?
